The bizarre and weird world of advertising.


Advertising is important for every company. If done properly it is what generates sales, if it is done badly it can become costly.

I remember when I worked for Philips they had an ad campaign with the slogan “Lets make things better” no one realized that this implied that things were not great to srart of with. The ad campaign was swiftly stopped.

The following are just some examples of some of the most bizarre and weird ads posters of days gone bey. The poster at the start is of a blind Stevie Wonder advertsiing Atari computer games.

DIY double chin remover.


Radioactive water


Hair growing hat


Good old fashioned orgy


How you like them lemons


Last but not least the all important Karate Action Jeans.



I am passionate about my site and I know you all like reading my blogs. I have been doing this at no cost and will continue to do so. All I ask is for a voluntary donation of $2, however if you are not in a position to do so I can fully understand, maybe next time then. Thank you. To donate click on the credit/debit card icon of the card you will use. If you want to donate more then $2 just add a higher number in the box left from the PayPal link. Many thanks.
